Obama’s top legal pick: Sharia law could appy in U.S. courts

JUDGES should interpret the Constitution according to other nations’ legal “norms.” Sharia law could apply to disputes in US courts. The United States constitutes an “axis of disobedience” along with North Korea and Saddam-era Iraq.

Those are the views of the man on track to become one of the US government’s top lawyers: Harold Koh.

President Obama has nominated Koh — until last week the dean of Yale Law School — to be the State Department’s legal adviser. In that job, Koh would forge a wide range of international agreements on issues from trade to arms control, and help represent our country in such places as the United Nations and the International Court of Justice.

It’s a job where you want a strong defender of America’s sovereignty. But that’s not Koh. He’s a fan of “transnational legal process,” arguing that the distinctions between US and international law should vanish.

The primacy of international legal “norms” applies even to treaties we reject. For example, Koh believes that the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child — a problematic document that we haven’t ratified — should dictate the age at which individual US states can execute criminals. Got that? On issues ranging from affirmative action to the interrogation of terrorists, what the rest of the world says, goes.

Including, apparently, the world of radical imams. A New York lawyer, Steven Stein, says that, in addressing the Yale Club of Greenwich in 2007, Koh claimed that “in an appropriate case, he didn’t see any reason why sharia law would not be applied to govern a case in the United States.”

A spokeswoman for Koh said she couldn’t confirm the incident, responding: “I had heard that some guy . . . had asked a question about sharia law, and that Dean Koh had said something about that while there are obvious differences among the many different legal systems, they also share some common legal concepts.”

Does this have anything to do with Obama’s proclivity for all things, and people, Muslim?

Say it Ain’t Koh!

Videos of Harold Koh on Youtube here including his claim the U.S. didn’t sign a human rights declaration because we want to employ child soldiers like Uganda.

Connected – George Soros had Harold Koh to his home for an “informal seminar”:

George Soros and Harold Koh are tightly woven together.  The Open Society is part of their agenda.  Even in George Soros’ The Age of Fallibility book, George Soros thanks Harold Koh for his input.

  1. If the United States goes the way of the UK — recognizing sharia law — I’m going to have to find a rock to live under.

    Any IDIOT knows that a country cannot have two systems of law and survive as a united country. Well, almost any idiot.

    BHO, at the least, is an Islamophile. I think that he’s beyond dhimmi and into an even worse mode.

    • BMO is such a fool, (with 151 days of political know how), he can’t find his ass with both hands and a road map with out Valarie Jerrette showing him the way!

  2. and this is who this country chose for change that will destroy us~ hoodwinked!!! move over always on watch~ i’ll be joining you!!

  3. Oh my gosh.. ok so when do you think we will have to start wearing Burka’s? Maybe I could set up a shop.. Thats if I dont get stoned to death first!

    Everytime I hear what is going on.. I just want to cry.. and we have 4 years of this..

    Someone please tell me its all a dream.. and this isnt really happening!

  4. Everyone involved is disputing the email account, so this just sounds like more fabricated outrage.

    • When Koh comes out and clearly states that Islamic sharia law should never be applied in the United States we’ll update the story or post a new one.

      So far, Koh has been silent and clearly has had plenty of time to consult with Obama on what their go-forward position will be vis-a-vis sharia law.

      No one fabricated the videos of Koh on Youtube where he lays out his positions on applying international or non-US law which should be worrisome.

      Not to mention his affiliation with George Soros – was that fabricated too?

      Btw, for all the lefty loon-kids, Fox didn’t break this story, the NY Post revived the 2007 story after Obama nominated Koh.

      • OOH everyone? yes all the cool kids say <<<<<<<<
        so juvenile
        didn't your mama ever say- well if all your friends are jumping off a bridge are you going to do that too?
        don't be a follower of groupthink
        educate yourself

  5. Haha, you guys are classic.

    Always On Watch: if you acutally believe this hoax story, you are already living under a rock. which really wouldn’t surprise me.

    creeping:

    “Btw, for all the lefty loon-kids, Fox didn’t break this story, the NY Post revived the 2007 story after Obama nominated Koh.”

    Hahahahah, so your big refutation that this is just Fox propoganda is to say this story was from the Post?!? You… uh, do realize they are the same company, right?

    • You lefty socialist, I’d love to meet you in person, and bring your gun and plenty of ammo. Sweetie, i’m 68 and I won’t need but ONE bullet to take you greasy Fing ass out for good!!! Why you folks socialist-libs all want up bam-bam’s ass is simpally to fight for the biggest piece of cogga!!
      All TRUE, CONSTITUTATIONALLY loving Americans , keep your gun clean and your powder dry, ’cause we’re going to need it soon to take our country back from the nigs, wet-backs and the rag heads!!!!

      • not all of us agree with joe but most of us certainly would not express our disagreement as anonymous did with slurs
        I personally dont like the words used even if I do understand his/her anger and impatience

        posts like that are often blamed on creeping who never uses such words or makes threats of violence- andit has made some people sy away from commenting here.

        Patriots please comport yourselves decently as we all get smeared for the wordsof the few. We haev truth and facts on our side and no need to stoop to their tactics- ridicule, lies, fantasies

  6. when you have a refutation from Koh that he is totally opposed to applying Islamic sharia law in the U.S. then let us know “joe” haha

    here is Koh’s spokespersons non-denial and admission that Koh did comment on sharia law:

    A spokeswoman for Koh said she couldn’t confirm the incident, responding: “I had heard that some guy . . . had asked a question about sharia law, and that Dean Koh had said something about that while there are obvious differences among the many different legal systems, they also share some common legal concepts.”

  7. The leftist like “joe”, are going to chime in like they always do. Just ignore them. Their in denial because they know that when their mothers, sisters, wives, and daughters are wearing burka’s, it’s all going to be their fault. So when these women turn to them and ask how all of these things happened, what do you think they’re going to say, “Bush did it?” They cerainly aren’t going to tell the truth, they never accept responsibility. Remember, these are the same people that have never taken the time to read a Qur’an, I have. They’ve no idea what Sharia’ law is all about, I do. And the name, Harold Koh, is completely new to them. So, cut the poor insignificant uneducated fool a break.

    Each and every one of us needs to email and/or call of State Reps. and tell them how we feel about this man. They need to be reminded that they work for us, not themselves. I don’t care if you’re a dem, repub, or lib. You’ve got to speak out against this. It can’t happen. Do something now.

  8. READ THIS BOOK!

    “The Humor of Islam…you’ll die laughing”

    The title is a twist on sharia law that forbids laughing too much! Sharia laws are the worst laws ever created, but most Muslims believe that sharia laws are the best laws ever created….but, they also believe in talking pork chops, so you decide

    NO SHARIA HERE!

  9. Always On Watch: “Any IDIOT knows that a country cannot have two systems of law and survive as a united country. Well, almost any idiot.”

    Really? When will our two separate systems of federal law and state law destroy America? I just want to be sure I’m ready.

  10. You won’t have to wait long. The Messia that’s been voted into office is putting all of his people in place. Car zars, Bank zars, Health Care zars, just to name a few. How much longer before the people keep taking this and join together and fight back.

    Please, read the second Amendment. I believe the time is coming.

    • Yeah, read somewhere Obama has appointed more czars than in Soviet Russia long ago…

      Sharia-sympathizers should be rejected outright…but looks like the Senate is prepared to vote Koh in with Republican support (even if just one)

  11. Dear God In Heaven,
    Please make it very clear why the traitor in the White House really went to over seas and not Isreal.
    Father protect those of us who love you!

  12. ok guys. I will admit that I dont know alot about all this stuff, but about the stuff I do know is that it’s wrong. I know ya’ll are probably like ” no duh, retard”, but I still think that BHO needs to really think about what he’s doing. If he doesnt change his mind, we all need to take a stand. We can fix this.

  13. He won’t change his mind and he knows exactly what he is doing. Don’t forget, part of his campaign platform was that he had “international” experience – which included attending a Muslim school in Indonesia as a kid. He also claimed a greater understanding of Islam due to his “travels” and family background which on his fathers side is Muslim.

    Take your stand. Pick the hill you want to fight/die on (figure of speech). Use the Contact Elected Officials link on our homepage. Start calling and writing your politicians. Do what you can.

  14. THE GUY SHOULD BE ARRESTED FOR TREASON TO THE CONSTITUTION.
    WHAT A STUPID IGNORANT MUSLIM!
    AND THAT IS WHAT HE IS.

    STOP SHARIA LAW !!!

    STOP THE MUSLIMS!!

    KICK ALL MUSLIMS OUT OF THE COUNTRY NOW!!!

    • THAT’S RIGHT. kICK ALL MUSLIMS OUT OF OUR COUNTRY NOW!!!
      SHARIA LAW??? It’s a law dreamed up by a crazy murdering loonatic!!

  18. [...] for those who weren’t around four years ago, remember that Harold Koh is one of Obama’s top legal appointees who stated  Sharia law could appy in U.S. [...]
